Perusing the high-street, there are SO many cool summer skirts around, but there is one particular style which is standing out from the crowd - the frill hem. You know the one - it’s often midi length, has a frill trumpet hem and a mini peekaboo split. For the more daring, the skirt can have a cheeky thigh split as well! Ooh err. This is one of those skirts you can wear to the office, to the pub, to a last minute BBQ or out for dinner on a balmy evening. Plus, the good news is that thanks to the asymmetrical hem, and a hint of skin, this skirt will look as amazing with a pair of Converse trainers as it does with a pair of sky high sandals. Basically, this is THE skirt of the season. Whether you’re teaming it with a band tee and a denim jacket or a camisole and a clutch bag, it will be your go-to for the summer months.
It’s not just us who love this Rixo London-esque design, fashion bloggers love it, too! From the super stylish Emma Hill to Ellie from SlipIntoStyle and Karen from WhereDidUGetThat.com, they all prove that this is the only skirt to be wearing right now.
